Big but Clean & Simple LOVE card

Artisan Embellishments Flowers LOVE Feb 2015 by Amanda Bates at The Craft Spa (1)

More from my All Day Workshop…. you can’t get much more CAS than this… but there have been a lot of oohs, squeals and WOWs over this card! That being said it is a large card… an A5 long card… ie nearly 12” wide and just over 4” high for my imperial buddies!

Now having bought the Artisan Embellishments kit to get the flower ribbon to do one particular thing…. I had used something else to do that thing! So I looked at the stunning flowers ribbon and knew I had to come up with something else!

And so a matching card to go with yesterdays mini book came to mind…..

It particularly works as the class kit included a piece of the wonderful Canvas Creations… just gives the background a great texture… making this a card very special with incredible soft dimension…. so tactile! Both the flower letters & the background…

That being said… as a girl that is not into pinks….. I began to call this the Marmite card… I couldn’t work out whether I loved it or hated it!! Luckily everyone else LOVED it! So what do I know…..

So how are the letters done… Simples…. cut rose ribbon into following lengths, apply a glue dot to the back of each rose and arrange on the card! Lovely and quick…

4 roses x 3; 3 roses x 1; 2 roses x 3 and 1 rose x 1

L is 4 down & 2 across

V is 4 down the left and 3 up the right

E is 4 down. 2 across at top & bottom and the single in the middle

And the O is the gorgeous wreath from the Your Perfect Day stamp set. Hand-cut and 3Dd onto the card….

Think this will be my Parents Wedding Anniversary card this year….
